Can a Lawyer Get a Bench Warrant Lifted?

Getting arrested can come as a shock to you. You may be certain you’ve not broken any laws, and you may be confused about why you’re being arrested. You may be unsure what a bench warrant is, let alone how to get it lifted.

Getting a bench warrant lifted or addressed can be tough without help, but that’s where a criminal defense lawyer at Chicago Trusted Attorneys™ can step in. We have the tools to address the bench warrant, represent you in court, and seek to get any charges dropped or dismissed.

Why Do I Have a Bench Warrant?

When you’re issued a bench warrant, your first step is understanding why you may have this outstanding warrant. Typically, bench warrants are issued when a person fails to appear in court. For example, you may have had a traffic ticket or DUI hearing, but you didn’t arrive at your hearing.

In these cases, a bench warrant may be issued to bring you to court for a hearing. You may also face further penalties if you failed to appear in court.

How a Defense Lawyer Can Help

If you checked for a warrant and found an outstanding one for your arrest, you may need legal guidance to avoid a messy situation. Luckily, that’s what your lawyer is here for.
